1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was invisible and unfurnished and there was darkness over this abyss; and a breath of God was brought on above the water. 3 And God said, "Let there be Light;" and there was light. 4 And God saw the light that it was good. And God made a separation between the light and the darkness. 5 And God called the light day; and the darkness he called night. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The first day. 6 Then God said, "Let there be a firmament in the midst of the water; and let it make a separation between water and water." And it was so. God made the firmament; and God made a separation between the water which was below the firmament

8 and the water which was above the firmament. And God called the firmament, heaven. And God saw that it was good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The second day. 9 Then God said, "Let the water which is below the heaven be gathered into one receptacle and let the dry land appear." 10 And it was so. The waters which were below the heaven were gathered into their several collections, and the dry land appeared. And God called the dry land, earth; and the collections of the waters he called, seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 And God said, "Let the earth produce the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit bearing tree together with the fruit, the seed of which is in it according to kind, upon the earth." And it was so. 12 The earth indeed produced the grassy plant with sowing seed according to kind and according to likeness, and the fruit tree together with fruit, the seed of which is in it, according to kind, in the earth. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The third day. 14 Then God said, "Let there be luminaries in the firmament of heaven, to give light on the earth; to make a separation between the day and the night: and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and for years; 15 and let them be for an illumination in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth." And it was so. 16 God indeed made the two great luminaries, the greater luminary for the regulations of the day, and the lesser luminary, with the stars, for the regulations of the night. 17 And God placed them in the firmament of heaven so as to shine on the earth, 18 and to regulate the day and the night, and to make a division between the light and the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fourth day. 20 Then God said, "Let the waters produce moving creatures having life; and winged creatures flying above the earth in the open firmament of heaven." And it was so. 21 God indeed made the great sea monsters and every species of moving animals which the waters produced according to their kinds, and every winged flying creature according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 22 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let flying creatures be multiplied on the earth." 23 And there was an evening and there was a morning. The fifth day. 24 Then God said, "Let the earth produce animal life according to kind; four footed beasts and reptiles and wild beasts of the earth according to kind." And it was so. 25 God indeed made the wild beasts of the earth according to their kind, and the cattle according to their kind, and all the reptiles of the earth according to kind. And God saw that they were good. 26 Then God said, "Let us make man after our image and after a likeness; and let them have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the cattle, and the whole earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them. 28 And God blessed them saying, "Increase and multiply and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all the cattle, and all the earth, and all the reptiles which creep on the earth." 29 Moreover God said, "Behold I have given you every seed bearing plant, the sowing seed which is on the whole earth, and every tree which hath in itself the fruit of seminal seed, you shall have for food: 30 And to all the beasts of the earth, and to all the birds of the air, and to every reptile on the earth, which hath in it animal life, I have also given every green herb for food." And it was so. 31 And God saw all the things which he had made, and behold they were very good. And there was an evening and there was a morning. The sixth day.
7 He it is, who stretcheth out Boreas over empty space; who suspendeth the earth upon nothing; 8 who bindeth up water in his clouds; and the cloud under it is not rent; 9 who taketh possession of the front of his throne and over it spreadeth his cloud. 10 His decree had drawn a circle on the face of the water; at the confines of light and darkness. 11 The pillars of heaven flutter and are struck with consternation at his rebuke. 12 By his power he calmed the sea; and by his knowledge the monster was overthrown. 13 The bars of heaven were terrified at him; and by a decree he doomed to death the apostate dragon. 14 Behold these are parts of his ways. But let us hear the least breath of reason for him. As for the strength of his thunder; who knoweth when he shall employ it?
27 When he furnished the heaven, I was with him; and when he set apart his own throne on the winds:
27 So God made man. After an image of God he made him. A male and a female he made them.
4 Where wast thou, when I laid the foundations of the earth? And tell me, if thou hast understanding,
17 therefore he is before all, and they are all kept in consistence by him,
7 He it is, who stretcheth out Boreas over empty space; who suspendeth the earth upon nothing;
20 for his invisible attributes, both his eternal power and divine majesty, being thought upon, are from the creation of the world clearly discoverable by the things made, so that they are without excuse
20 O Timothy keep this deposit, avoiding the profane empty declamations, and the antitheses of that falsely called science,
13 and I applied my heart to seek and make diligent search by wisdom concerning all the things which are done on the earth. Because God hath assigned to the sons of men painful employment, that they may be kept employed, 14 I took a view of all the different sorts of work which are done under the sun. And behold they are all vanity and vexation of spirit. 15 That which is crooked cannot be made straight, nor can wants be numbered. 16 I communed with my heart, saying, Behold I am become great and have made advances in wisdom above all who were before me in Jerusalem. And I have applied my mind to know wisdom and knowledge. 17 And my mind hath taken a view of many things; of wisdom and knowledge; of parables and science. I have found by experience that this also is indeed vexation of spirit.
22 He it is, who occupieth the circuit of the earth; and the inhabitants thereon are as grasshoppers. He it is, who established the heaven as an arch, and spread it out as a tent to be dwelt in;
1 In the beginning God made the heaven and the earth.
5 Who founded the earth on its firm basis, that it may not be moved forever.
12 Who hath measured the water with his hand, and the heaven with a span and the whole earth with a hand breadth? Who hath weighed the mountains in scales and the dales with a balance?
4 Where wast thou, when I laid the foundations of the earth? And tell me, if thou hast understanding, 5 who settled the measures of it? Dost thou know? Or who stretched the line upon it? 6 To what are the hooks of it fastened? And who laid the corner stone thereof? 7 When the stars were made, all my angels praised me with a loud voice. 8 It was I who shut up the sea with gates, when it rushed eagerly from its mother's womb. 9 It was I who made a cloud its cloathing; and thick darkness its swaddling bands. 10 It was I who set bounds to it; surrounded it with bars and gates; 11 and said to it, Thus far thou shalt come and no farther: but in thyself thy waves shall be spent. 12 Was it in concert with thee that I ordered the morning light; and that the day spring knew its appointed time 13 to tinge the wings of the earth; to scare the wicked from it? 14 Didst thou take clay of the earth and form an animal and place on the earth a creature endowed with speech? 15 Hast thou withdrawn the light from the wicked, and broken in pieces the arms of the haughty? 16 Hast thou gone to the head spring of the sea; and walked in the footsteps of the abyss? 17 Are the gates of Hades opened to thee through fear, and are the porters of Hades struck with awe at seeing thee? 18 Hast thou informed thyself of the breadth of that under heaven? Tell me then what is the extent of it. 19 In what country doth light make its abode, and of what sort is the place of darkness? 20 If thou wouldst lead me to their borders, and if thou knewest their paths; 21 I would know that thou wast then born, and that the number of thy years is great. 22 Hast thou gone to the treasuries of snow, or hast thou seen the treasuries of hail? 23 Are they stored up for thee, for a time of enemies; for a day of battles and combat? 24 From what place doth hoar frost issue, or whence is the south wind scattered over the earth? 25 Who hath prepared a course for the tempest, 26 and a way for impetuous storms to water the ground, where there is not a man; the desert where no man dwelleth; to saturate an untrodden, uninhabited land 27 and cause the bud of the tender herb to spring? 28 Who is the father of rain, and who hath begotten the drops of dew? 29 From whose womb doth ice proceed, and who in the sky hath brought forth hail 30 which descendeth like a shower? Who hath struck with terror the face of the wicked?
2 The works of the Lord are great; exquisitely contrived for all his purposes.
